Susie, owner of Up and Running in Dayton, began running in her mid-30s and due to her sister’s influence became a marathoner at the age of 40. In the midst of learning a new sport, she realized that the new runner and walker were not being targeted in this market, and so began the evolution of Up and Running. If she isn’t in the store, she is most likely swimming, riding, running or enjoying a pilates class…trying to keep up with the rest of the people at UAR. Susie has competed in races from 5K to marathon, and sprint triathlons to Half Ironman races! She’s created an all inclusive environment at Up and Running for her staff and customers.
